I believe that caring and respectful relationships are the basis for any kind of healing. In my work with patients I view what we do together as a collaboration. You are the expert in yourself and your feelings. I bring to that collaboration the expertise from my academic experience and training as well as from the care of thousands of patients with similar problems. Together we create a treatment plan that will lead to a sustained recovery from a mood or anxiety disorder.
I am on the faculty at UCSF, where I teach in the bipolar disorders clinic. I am a Distinguished Fellow in the American Psychiatric Association, and one of the "Best Doctors in America" (a peer reviewed list of doctors).
The essence of good psychiatric care is trying to see through your eyes and understanding your perceptions and experiences. In my work I always address these aspects of care: respect for your values; communication, coordination and integration of care; emotional support; and involvement of family and friends, if appropriate.
